Sock Site Exciting Success

Congratulations and a big thank you to the Yates family for all their work in creating TheSockDrawer auction website, raising money for the Cystinosis Foundation UK!

Patrick Yates, website creator, picks up the story:

"The Yates family launched The Sock Drawer website in August. This all came about when Edward’s nana, having sold many sock creatures to raise funds for the Foundation, wondered what to do with all the photos she had of them.

Edward’s Uncle Pat set up the site,, which offered a peek at the creatures and a monthly draw offering the chance to win one of four. Over the course of three months the site raised just over £300, including gift aid.

The draw is now closed but the site is open for donations and for ordering sock creatures. So please feel free to take a look. Edward’s nana and grandad have the sewing machine at the ready!"
